Apple launched its translation app this year after it was announced at WWDC in June, along with iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur.
Translator comes as a standalone app on iPhones and as a built-in feature in the Safari web browser for macOS Big Sur users.
The translation app works with 11 languages, but the built-in Safari translator was limited to some regions, and this has changed now as Apple introduces this option in more countries.
And for some unknown reason, Safari translator was not available in all countries that the translation app supported. Now the matter has changed, as many users from different countries have reported that Safari translator has been enabled.
Some users in countries such as Brazil and Germany have indicated that the translation option now works in Safari.
Based on user reports, Apple has enabled the option of remote translation, given that it works on iOS 14.1 and also on the newly released iOS 14.2.
The same is true for macOS Big Sur beta and macOS Big Sur 11.0.1.
With this feature, you can quickly translate texts from any webpage written in a language other than your own.
The translation app and Safari translator work in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
All translations are processed locally using the Neural Engine, so the translation app works even without an internet connection, and when connected to the internet, the app uses Apple’s servers to process the translations, making the results more accurate.
You can write text to translate it or use the dictation feature to translate what you say with your voice, and iOS can read the translation with correct pronunciation, which is useful for communicating with others and learning a different language.
Users can bookmark translations to check again later and the app also keeps a record of recent translations.
